How to Speak so People Will Listen

What instrument emits “the most powerful sound in the world?” Your voice, according to sound expert and author Julian Treasure. Despite that, most people don’t know how to speak in a way that encourages others to listen.

“The human voice—it’s the instrument we all play....It’s the only one that can start a war or say, ‘I love you,’” says Treasure. “And yet, many people have the experience of when they speak, people don’t listen to them.”

Treasure tells us seven speaking habits to avoid—and gives us four to try out—in this information-packed clip. Stick around for the end, when he demonstrates six vocal warm-ups that are a must before any presentation.
